THE 
BRICK
  

A young and successful 
executive was traveling down a neighbourhood street, 
going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar.. He was 
watching for kids darting out from between parked 
cars and slowed down
 when he thought he saw
something.

As his car passed, no children appeared.
Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door!
He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to
the spot where the brick had been thrown.
  
The angry
driver then jumped out of the
car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up
against
 a parked car shouting, 

'What was that all about and who are you? Just what
the heck are you doing? That's a new car and that
brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why
did you do it?' The young boy was apologetic.
'Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but I didn't
know what else to do,' He pleaded. 'I threw the
brick because no one else would stop....' With tears
dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth
pointed to a spot just around a parked car.. 'It's my
brother, 'he said 'He rolled off the curb and fell
out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up.'
  

Now sobbing, the boy
asked the stunned executive, 'Would you please help
me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and
he's too heavy for me.'
 

Moved beyond words,
the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling
lump in his throat... He hurriedly lifted the
handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took
out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh
scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything
was going to be okay. 'Thank you and may God bless
you,' the grateful child told the stranger. Too
shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy!
push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home..
 

It was a long, slow
walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very
noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair
the dented side door. He kept the dent there to
remind him of this message: 'Don't go through life
so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to
get your attention!' God whispers in our souls and
speaks to our hearts Sometimes when we don't have
time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It's
our choice to listen or not.
 

Thought for the Day:
 

If God had a
refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
  
If He had a wallet,
your photo would be in it.
  

He sends you flowers every spring.
  

He sends you a sunrise
every morning Face it, friend - HE is crazy about you!
  
Send this to every
'beautiful person' you wish to bless.
  

God didn't promise
days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun
without rain, but He did promise strength for the
day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

  

Read this line very
slowly and let it sink in...
  

If God brings you to
it, He will bring you through it.

  

Pass this message to 
your friends and family!


The End
